Special Relativity and Motions Faster than Light by Moses Fayngold
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Since its development by Albert Einstein, the theory of special relativity has fascinated scientists, science fiction writers, futurists and the popular imagination. In particular, its assertion that the speed of light in a vacuum is finite has unsettled many, who have attempted to disprove the claim. In clear, unintimidating language, Moses Fayngold tackles Einstein's opponents and shows that the absoluteness of the speed of light is inviolate.
